Robert A Heinlein
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
If you wish to study men you must not neglect to mix with the society of children.
In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Thomas G Halliburton
The suspicious parent makes an artful child.
Too many parents make life hard for their children by trying, too zealously, to make it easy for them.
B C Forbes
Upon our children -- how they are taught -- rests the fate -- or fortune -- of tomorrow's world.
